Seeds of Wisdom Collection by 1928 Jewelry
Note:
I love elephants especially with their trunks up. My Mom adored her elephant collection and took them to her bingo games. I saw this Seeds of Wisdom collection and thought it would be cool to have a elephant charm necklace I could take with me when I go to the Indian casinos. Since I feel I lack confidence, I just might get a boost from this wonderful necklace!

What Is Inspiration?

What is inspiration?
Inspiration is...seeing a stranger smile, a happy dog wagging it's tail, the sun brightly shining in the sky, people walking hand in hand, the smell of coffee brewing, fashion ads in the latest magazines, getting all the bills paid, the sweet taste of a Roma tomato...
What is YOUR inspiration??

I Love Lucy Episode #60 Excerpt 'Lucy's Last Birthday'
Note: This is one of my favorite I Love Lucy episodes of all time! Was your birthday ever forgotten or thought it was? I can relate! While we're at it... What's your favorite I Love Lucy episode??

Lucille Ball Quotes Part 1

"Ability is of little account without opportunity."

"How I Love Lucy was born? We decided that instead of divorce lawyers profiting from our mistakes, we'd profit from them."

"I am a real ham. I love an audience. I work better with an audience. I am dead, in fact, without one."

"I hate failure and that divorce was a Number One failure in my eyes. It was the worst period of my life. Neither Desi nor I have been the same since, physically or mentally."

"I have an everyday religion that works for me. Love yourself first, and everything else falls into line."



Lucille Ball's 100th Birthday

Image
Happy 100th Birthday, Lucy!!!




Note: Like millions, I'm a BIG Lucille Ball fan! There was no one like her then and now! The day she died, I cried and cried like someone in my family passed away. To me, she was someone I grew up with and watched on TV everyday. Cracking up to her antics and schemes. Lucy was someone you could relate to. I wanted to BE Lucy! She will ALWAYS remain in my heart and I will continue to watch her show until the day I die! XOXOX

“Once you realize that each day of your life brings a new chance for you, you will be able to move on and be happy.”

“To be mentally sound, you need changes. You cannot do the same thing repeatedly and expect to have different results.”
